We head out tonight for a 2 1/2 week run through parts of the North and South East. We have lots of songs from The Nomad Series in our repetoire as well as dozens from our catalogue (including the entirety of Black Eyed Man and, of course, The Trinity Session). We hope that we see some of you out there and if you can't make it please follow along on the tour diary that we will be posting as we move along. Check out the tour page to see if we are coming close to your front door…..Northampton here we come.

“prime uneasy listening” exclaim – 8/10
“ a beguiling record … jazz, country and American folk music, all filtered through Wilson’s impressive vision and impeccable taste.” Americana UK – 8/10

In September we are teaming up again with our pals at Roots On The Rails (the same group who put together our train trip across Canada a few years ago). This time we are heading to Alaska, where we'll be journeying through the mind-bending beauty of Denali Park…and you can join us if you have the time, the inclination and the cash. It's not a cheap trip, but it sounds like it will be amazing. So if you are looking to spend some of your retirement savings, please visit the Roots On The Rails website and check out the details.
